Many iPhone users store hundreds, even thousands, of snapshots on their mobile devices, only to realize too late that they have no backup. If the phone gets lost, stolen, or broken, those photos could be gone for good.

In fact, it's a common misconception that iCloud is automatically keeping a full backup of your pictures, but unless that feature is enabled and you've paid for extra storage (the 5GB of free space can fill up pretty quickly), you might not have a backup at all.

Another common problem: when you've snapped so many photos and videos that you're out of storage. The only option at that point is to delete some media or offload it to your PC to free up space.

CopyTrans Photo can help with all this stuff. It offers quick and easy two-way transfer of photos and albums b... [Read more]


Just days after 10.9.1 update, Apple preps Mavericks for 10.9.2

Posted: 20 Dec 2013 06:36 AM PST

Apple has launched another update to OS X Mavericks, but for now, it's only available to developers.

Dubbed OS X Update Seed 10.9.2, the prerelease update includes some minor tweaks to Mail and deeper integration of FaceTime audio into Messages and associated apps, according to 9to5Mac, which earlier reported on the update. Apple also asked developers to specifically focus their time on testing VPN, Graphics Drivers, and VoiceOver, according to a listing in the Mac App Store.

Apple launched its OS X Mavericks 10.9.1 update earlier this week. It's not uncommon for a subsequent improvement to be in testing so soon after a public release of an earlier version. There's no telling right now how long it will take before 10.9.2 is made available to the public.

Google is kicking toolbars and other "multipurpose extensions" out of the Chrome Web Store in an effort to keep its browser's interface uncluttered and to protect users from unpleasant surprises.

The change will be disruptive to many extension programmers, but Google is giving them until June 2014 for existing extensions. New ones must abide by the new rules immediately, said Chrome engineering director Erik Kay.

"Extensions in the Chrome Web Store must have a single purpose that is narrow and easy to understand," Kay said in a blog post on Thursday. "While this has always been the intent of the Chrome extension system, not all extensions have lived up to this ideal. These multi-purpose extensions can crowd your browser UI and slow down your web browsing -- sometimes significantly."

The company singled out toolbars in particular. Google... [Read more]
